Week 1 6.1.20

This week Kangaroo Class have been learning:



  • We started looking at our new topic; Superheroes!
  • We read the story ‘Supertato’ by Sue Hendra and drew story maps to order the main events.
  • We wrote lists to describe the qualities of a good superhero.
  • We focused on the phonic sounds ‘ea’ (tea) and ‘a_e’ (cake).



  • We began the week by naming and describing the properties of 3D shapes.
  • We sorted a variety of 2D and 3D shapes in different ways using a Venn diagram.
  • We found different ways to make the same number by drawing groups of objects.
  • We used multilink and balance scales to show the meaning of = as ‘the same as’.



  • We designed our own Superveg! We thought about what superheroes would wear and how we could create our own heroes using vegetables.
  • We thought about heroes in our community and described who our heroes were and the reasons why.
  • We enjoyed Relax Kids with Natasha and discussed the importance of staying safe.


What a brilliant start to the New Year; well done Kangaroos!
